The face of hometown hero Jim Thorpe will soon have a place on breakfast tables across the country.

Wheaties choose the All American from Yale, Oklahoma, for their 'Breakfast of Champions' box as a way to observe Native American month.

A huge box was unveiled this week in the Pennsylvania town named after Thorpe.
